Ross 'Teddy' Craig: Can we please start writing Scotland off again?

28 Nov 2014 08:30

Jobs in Aberdeen are a mouse click nearer

15 Sep 2014 14:22

Anyone struggling to find a job in Aberdeen may look askance at the idea that the Granity City is a boom town these days, but in real terms - measured against a UK jobs market in the doldrums - it’s still a city of wealth and opportunity.
